The New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) was established in 1971 as a voluntary association of market participants from the six New England States.  The Participants Committee is the principal governing body of NEPOOL, which considers and acts on all matters affecting the New England region’s wholesale electric power arrangements, either directly or by delegation. The Participants Committee is made up of six energy Sectors in which every NEPOOL Participant, together with its Related Persons, is entitled to have a member and alternate.  The six Sectors are each represented by an Officer that is selected by the Sector on an annual basis. A Committee Chairman is elected from among those Officers.  The Participants Committee meets monthly in a New England locale, typically in Boston or its environs, and has an annual Summer Meeting, typically at the end of June, at locations throughout the New England States.

             dissenting), the FERC accepted the changes to the determination of economic life under Section 
             III. of the ISO-NE Tariff, effective on Aug 10, 2018, as requested.  The FERC found that "under 
             these specific facts, the benefits of the proposed Economic Life Revisions outweigh potential disruptions to 
             market participants’ settled expectations and harm caused by reliance on the existing FCM rules ... [and] the 
             specific benefits of implementing the Economic Life Revisions, including ensuring competitive market outcomes 
             for FCA 13, outweigh the concerns articulated by NEPGA.  View order here
